Seattle Seahawks star running back Marshawn Lynch wants a new contract.

Dissatisfied with his current $30 million deal that includes remaining base salaries of $5 million and $5.5 million over the next two years, Lynch is expected to skip a mandatory minicamp next week.

That would cost him up to $70,000 in fines.

"It's very, very unlikely that Lynch will be there,'' a source told ESPN. "He wants the Seahawks to renegotiate his current contract and provide him with more up-front money."

Although Lynch rushed for 1,257 yards and 14 touchdowns last season for the Super Bowl champions, they also have Christine Michael waiting in the wings.
